Traceability – A generic way to link requirements and test cases

Do you want to establish (requirements) traceability to your custom scripts, text files and tools, e.g. link requirements residing in DOORS or Polarion to test cases defined in tools such as VectorCAST or maybe to a custom scripting language? In this post I want to illustrate how to achieve not only the linking in such a case, but also how easy it is to navigate such links and to create a coverage report based on those links. Read more >

Weaving Testing into the Web of Traceability

In the development of safety-critical systems it is essential to prove that the developed product fullfills all requirements (including system requirements, safety requirements and security requirements) to ensure the correct functionality and to prove that engineering is up to the state-of-the-art for legal reasons.

Swift Code Generation with YAKINDU Statechart Tools

Swift is a programming languages made by Apple, mostly for their iOS and MacOS ecosystem, to replace Objective-C. However, using the official port, a stripped-down version of Swift can also be used under Linux, although it is lacking, for example, graphical libraries that are bound to Apple systems. Cross-compiling iOS or MacOS apps is therefore still not possible, due to missing ports of the required libraries. Working with Swift on Windows is only possible with an unofficial port and may or may not work properly. Read more >

Advanced signal highlighting in Simulink models

When working with Simulink block diagrams, one major use case is to trace signals. Understanding how signal data are processed from inputs to outputs is especially useful when debugging your model. Since signal flows are easily scattered across various subsystems and hierarchy levels tool support is essential here. Read more >

Introducing YAKINDU Model Viewer 1.3.4

The YAKINDU Model Viewer team is proud to release the new version 1.3.4! YAKINDU Model Viewer now includes an extended version of the signal tracing feature. Aside from that, we fixed some bugs and made it to add some new features also.  Read more >

YAKINDU Statechart Tools January release – new and noteworthy

We released YAKINDU Statechart Tools Standard and Professional Edition version 3.2.0 today! In the last three months, the YAKINDU team fixed 66 Standard Edition and 28 Professional Edition issues. Apart from several bug fixes, we added some great new features: Read more >

SCT µConnect – microcontroller support in YAKINDU Statechart Tools

By default, statechart models in YAKINDU Statechart Tools are platform-agnostic. There are  no assumptions made about any target platform. Thus the code is platform-independent, and the generated C or C++ code can be used on any microcontroller.  Read more >

Traceability for Polarion and source code

The Polarion adapter of YAKINDU Traceability provides traceability for Polarion work items. Work items are not restricted to source code only, they can rather also be any other development artifact type, for example test cases in an external tool. YAKINDU Traceability can also recognize links existing within Polarion between Polarion work items. As part of the latest release, we based the Polarion adapter on a new technical foundation.  Read more >

Tune your Pinewood Car with YAKINDU Statechart Tools

YAKINDU Statechart Tools have a wide range of use: They are used in academic and commercial contexts – and even in spare time. Let’s take a look at a project of one YAKINDU Statechart Tools user. Scott Dixon realized a light control for his son’s Pinewood Car. Read more >

YAKINDU Solidity Tools beta released

A couple of months ago me and my colleague Florian Antony had the chance to attend a workshop on smart contract development with Solidity. The workshop was great fun and we learned a lot about blockchains, smart contracts and the like. What we also learned is that most editors for Solidity lack some important features that are crucial for developing high quality software. Read more >
